Owner description: On our relaxed and casual tapas tours you can experience some of Sevilla’s best tapas bars and enjoy an excellent selection of tapas & wines. Lunchtime or evening tours are available, with all-inclusive or pay-as-you-go options. We offer several tapas tour routes, each focusing on a particular barrio (neighbourhood) and tailormade to suit your tastes. The usual duration is approximately 3 hours. Our Market & Tapas Tours will take you to two markets, one traditional and one modern, where we tell you all about the fresh fish, meats and produce on display, and of course sample some of the culinary delights along the way, then stopping at a market bar for seafood tapas. On our Flamenco & Tapas Tour you will see an hour-long flamenco performance before heading out for an evening of tapas.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We did a Tapas Tour with Shawn last week - it was fantastic. Shawn is a fun and knowledgeable guide and it was an absolute pleasure to spend an evening with her. We visited three quite different tapas bars and enjoyed every single mouthful we ate. Doing the tour with Shawn gave us the confidence to go tapaoing every night of our stay. Not only that, but we learned so much about Seville and Shawn even e mailed us suggestions of places and tapas bars to visit in the next Spanish city we were visiting - information we put to very good use! Thank you Shawn and Peter.

Thank you Hilary - it was an absolute pleasure spending the evening with you and your husband as well. Also loved that you guys "clicked" immediately with the other couple who joined us. I reckon the common bond is always great food and drink and chat. What else do you need for a wonderful time?

Shawn was an amazing guide to our afternoon adventure - loved the food, conversation and the drinks. All during the fabulous Semana Santa week! Highly recommend the Tapas Tour!

Semana Santa is always a bit tricky with the crowds and processions, which is why the lunchtime tour was a good idea. Yep, great food, conversation and drinks are what it's all about. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!

“An amazing guide ( or host to Seville)?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Found by pure chance on internet , Shawn and her tour was my best choice of what to do in Seville . In fact Shawn offers a lot more than a tour : she is a perfect host to Seville,great company and knowledagble, she will offer true insights in good food around town . The tips she gave me went beyond the pleasant tour night together and allowed me to discover a lot of true gems of good excellent food in Seville, which I would never have found on my own . A great thanks to her !

“Amazing food with an equally amazing guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We did the Tapas Tour on March 13 with Shawn and very happy! It was a great way to start our time in Spain. The amazing, delicious, diverse sample of food and her company ended up being one of the biggest highlights of our vacation (we did Portugal-Spain-Morocco)! She took us to family-run bars as well as one modern bar on our tour and there was NOTHING we did not enjoy! She matched our food preferences perfectly with the places we ended up visiting, and was very informative on the food as well as Seville. We had the delicious morcilla (blood sausage), jamon, pringa (fried pork with sausage in a bun..best sandwich!) octopus salad and much more!! it was a little bit of heaven for a foodie :)
She was very helpful beyond this tour as well by providing us with a list of helpful Spanish phrases and words. She even gave us her recommendations of restaurants in other cities we were visiting in Spain, a few of which we ended up going to and quite enjoyed! It was great to spend nearly 4 hours with the fun and knowledgeable Shawn who makes this tour very personable! We will do this again if we're back in Seville!
Don't hesitate booking this tour as Shawn really is THE Queen of Tapas, you won't regret it if you love good food!
Thank you Shawn, you were a delight! Yelena and Nathan

Next time you come we should do a Market & Tapas tour - am sure you'd really enjoy that. Having such adventurous eaters as you and Nathan makes it easy for me to come up with interesting suggestions. Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review.

“Great foodie afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I had a great afternoon on a tapas tour with Shawn visiting bars in the Arenal Barrio. These ranged from the traditional to a modern tapas bar, but all were family run. Shawn is so enthusiastic and shares her knowledge with you during the tour. We visited bars I would never have found on my own and we were able to try and wide range of dishes, sherry and wines.

Thanks Joanna! The "Arenal tour" is one of my favourites, totally non-touristy. Really glad you were able to join us and that you had a great time.
